Nice!  You can give this series a try.  It aims to improve SPLIT
scheduling quite a bit:

8091691 New          [v5,01/21] usb: dwc2: rockchip: Make the
max_transfer_size automatic
8091701 New          [v5,02/21] usb: dwc2: host: Get aligned DMA in a
more supported way
8092101 New          [v5,03/21] usb: dwc2: host: Set host_rx_fifo_size
to 528 for rk3066
8092091 New          [v5,04/21] usb: dwc2: host: Set
host_perio_tx_fifo_size to 304 for rk3066
8092081 New          [v5,05/21] usb: dwc2: host: Avoid use of chan->qh
after qh freed
8092071 New          [v5,06/21] usb: dwc2: host: Always add to the
tail of queues
8092061 New          [v5,07/21] usb: dwc2: hcd: fix split transfer
schedule sequence
8091761 New          [v5,08/21] usb: dwc2: host: Add scheduler tracing
8092051 New          [v5,09/21] usb: dwc2: host: Add a delay before
releasing periodic bandwidth
8092041 New          [v5,10/21] usb: dwc2: host: Giveback URB in tasklet context
8092031 New          [v5,11/21] usb: dwc2: host: Use periodic
interrupt even with DMA
8092021 New          [v5,12/21] usb: dwc2: host: Rename some fields in
struct dwc2_qh
8092011 New          [v5,13/21] usb: dwc2: host: Reorder things in hcd_queue.c
8092001 New          [v5,14/21] usb: dwc2: host: Split code out to
make dwc2_do_reserve()
8091991 New          [v5,15/21] usb: dwc2: host: Add scheduler logging
for missed SOFs
8091821 New          [v5,16/21] usb: dwc2: host: Manage frame nums
better in scheduler
8091831 New          [v5,17/21] usb: dwc2: host: Schedule periodic
right away if it's time
8091971 New          [v5,18/21] usb: dwc2: host: Add
dwc2_hcd_get_future_frame_number() call
8091961 New          [v5,19/21] usb: dwc2: host: Properly set even/odd frame
8091981 New          [v5,20/21] usb: dwc2: host: Totally redo the
microframe scheduler
8091951 New          [v5,21/21] usb: dwc2: host: If using uframe
scheduler, end splits better

Plus grab:

8094921 New          usb: dwc2: host: Properly set the HFIR

You could ignore the two rk3066 patches, though they won't hurt you.
Hopefully you also saw the note that you should pick the two patches:
